A grass-green mad scientist of a gem, the Tourmaline family is as rich in colour as they are brilliant in cut.
“Tourmaline was sometimes called the “Ceylonese Sri Lankan Magnet” because it could attract and then repel hot ashes due to its pyroelectric properties”
A rare intense green tourmaline is known as chrome tourmaline.
Found only in East Africa, it is coloured by chromium and vanadium when forming and other tourmalines are just as sensitive to their geological surroundings. They are some of the the most vibrant and varied gemstone species on planet Earth.
These Brilliant Cut grass green stones are suitable for rings, earrings and the smallest suitable for blind setting in certain styles of cuff.
